Their main aim is to support families and individuals facing a wide range of trauma or tragedy. Fly2Help welcomes nominations from the public and individuals and works closely with like-minded charities, including Dreamflight, Action for Children, MENCAP, Winston’s Wish, Young Carers and The Wallace and Gromit Children’s Foundation.
They pride themselves on being a catalyst to produce positive changes in people’s attitudes and lives. The opportunity to experience the liberation and freedom of flight at an Air Smiles Day can inspire, develop imagination and stretch personal boundaries, helping individuals to discover new benefits through renewed self-determination. The extra boost that comes from the freedom of the skies and the exhilaration of flight has been proven to renew motivation and enthusiasm, as well as increase long term self-esteem and confidence.
Fly2Help encourages young people into a career in the aerospace sector through our Aim High programmes and extensive network of contacts. Their ambition is to set up more schemes within countrywide educational establishments by developing close links with corporate sponsors.
Paul’s involvement has been directed at fund-raising through the Annual Gala Dinner and Auction. For several years, he has been the Master of Ceremonies for these events, including organising auction prizes and the raffle. Guests at his table this year included John Sargeant, the legendary broadcast and Spitfire fan, and the Minister of State for Defence Personnel, Welfare and Veterans, Rt Hon Mark Francois MP, another Spitfire enthusiast.
“fly2help enables those of us with a passion for aviation and for helping others to bring both together. I am particularly keen on the events like the Annual Dinner and Golf Days (even as a non-player) because they bring like-minded people together”
